On September 16, 2007, the Russian Samovar Museum began to work. It houses Mikhail Silkov’s collection of samovars. The museum has collected samovars from all over the Russian Empire that date from as early as the 18th century. The history of the exhibits, the fate of their owners, creators, masters and much more can be found out by visiting our museum. It has three large rooms, one small room, and a tea room. The museum contains exhibits from famous and rare samovar masters of Russia: V. S. Bashashov, the Shemarins brothers, I. F. Kapyrzin, Shaposhnikov in Kirzhach, Nikolai Malikov in Tula, merchant woman E. Pushkova, and many others.
In the second hall of the museum you will see a wonderful exhibit – a samovar from a batch of station samovars made by the order of Nicholas II. There is an inscription on the samovar that says “Siberian railway. Zamzor Station. Boiling water is free.” It is a large station samovar, which has a capacity of three buckets of water.
There are also “improved” samovars in the collection, that is, patents. For example, a samovar with an inscription on the cover: “I. D. Bulgakov and M. I. Kurilov of the company in Tula have been improved and privileged. Patent No. 157 “.
